PRESIDENT'S CORNER
By Frank D'Amato

The community has experienced a very busy summer. I would like to update everyone on the street maintenance as well as various other topics of interest.

As you know the seal coating for 2006 has been completed. There were several areas that were patched prior to seal coating. As I write this letter, we are in the process of cleaning some of the over spray. The streets received both a squeegee coat and a spray coat. I want to thank Bob Brown for all his hard work and the many hours he devoted to this project.

This was our first experience with this type of road maintenance and we learned a great deal as we progressed through the operation:
  1. The project lasted longer than planned by the contractor. (Equipment problems)
  2. We attempted, on a daily basis, larger areas than could be completed.
  3. The whole operation went better when we entirely shut down a street.
  4. Residents toward the rear of the community insisted on using the front entrance/exit when the Kings River entrance/exit would have helped the operation.
  5. Folks drove through cones, drove on curbs and even into driveways before the sealer dried.
  6. Folks to the rear of the community did not ask their service people to use the Kings River entrance/exit.
I do not want residents to think that there was not a great deal of cooperation. Most residents did everything we asked and more and the Board wants to thank you all. The above comments were a learning experience, so that next years work will run more smoothly.

Moving on:
A storm water drain developed a leak on a homeowner’s property and caused a large sink hole. It was necessary to hire a contractor who does our drainage work and repair the problem. The cost was $2,745. It was determined that this was more shoddy work by Centex. The money came from our Reserve Fund. I will discuss with Centex but do not count on any help.

On Friday, June 16th, a health fair was held at the pool house by Georgetown Hospital. Sixty three residents attended and had several types of blood work performed and received results through the mail. We considered this a success and we are now planning a fall session with the hospital for residents to receive flu shots. We will keep you posted as to the timing. If you want us to continue this type of service you must show us by attending or we will consider this a waste of time.  Thank you to resident, Frank Walsh, who championed this event.

I am asking residents not to be offended when someone asks you if you are a resident and/or a guest at the pool. I was forced to ask Willbrook people to leave as they were using an old key from when they previously lived in the Tradition. They liked our pool better.

The board has decided to reduce the number of newsletters (4) per year to (3) per year.

The River Club has alerted us of break ins to cars parked in driveways overnight. I have placed information on the website. Those of you, who have a computer, should be checking the Tradition website periodically for information. Our resident, Vince Franco, has done an outstanding job with our web.

As of June 30th the Operating budget is on track. However, we have been forced to spend more than planned from the Reserve fund to cover unexpected drainage issues.

I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Convenants Committee
By Jeanette Renault

Meets 7:00pm Second Tuesday
Lawns take on new problems with summer and we all seem to have our share attempting to solve them. Keeping the lawn edged and neat goes a long way to improve appearance.

Your Covenants Committee recently completed a successful rust survey. We sent out letters with suggestions to help deal with this insidious problem. Rust is with us and is not going away. Being vigilant in cleaning is the only way to keep up with it. Please include your gutter pans when cleaning.

Some suggestions from the committee:
  1. Spray Round-up on crevices/curbs where weeds tend to sprout
  2. Roof cleaning is controversial; opinions vary as to whether or not it is beneficial to remove mold/mildew/moss. Sometimes there is damage to shrubs. Roof cleaners phone numbers are available upon request
  3. Animal control number is 546-5102
  4. Utility companies need to have access to power boxes, but we suggest frontal shrub screening between boxes and the street
  5. Store or screen garbage cans except on days of pick up
  6. Lawn chairs should not remain in front of the home

Meets 7:00pm Third Tuesday
View and Print the ARB Application
from the internet

A great number of permit requests are being processed this summer. Mostly for tree removal because of the hurricane season upon us.

I would like to take a few moments of your time to remind everyone that your applications should be turned in to someone on the ARB two weeks prior to our meeting dates. We have tried to accommodate people when there is some reason for a speedy approval. These approvals have caused some board members extra time and inconvenience. We would like to prevent this from happening as much as possible. Please try to make your applications in a timely manner to give the ARB time to review your request.

The ARB is also starting a complete review of the guidelines with some revisions possible. This is being done in conjunction with other committees in order to update our covenants. If you have any suggestions about ARB or other committees, please let someone know your thoughts so that they can be considered.

BUILDINGS & GROUNDS
By Bob Brown
The building and grounds committee continues to work diligently around the community. Each of us is responsible to do our part. Below are a couple of issues that have surfaced recently that need to be addressed by the homeowners. We appreciate your help.

DISPOSAL OF PAINT
Please do not put paint cans or containers out for trash. When the trucks compact your garbage the paint containers rupture and the contents leak onto our streets. Garbage trucks shouldn’t leak but they do. You may have noticed the yellow paint on the road at the corner of Deacon and Tradition Club Drive (at the cart crossing). Please take your containers to the recycle center.

The Recycle center will accept paint containers are as follows:
  1. If the container is empty
  2. If the paint in the container is absorbed
How can you absorb paint? If the container is less than half full, fill it with an absorbent such as cat litter. If the container is more than half full, you will have to divide it into two containers so enough absorbent can be added to soak up the paint.

We should all avoid putting any liquids out for pick-up, use the absorbent method.

SAND IN THE COMMUNITY POOL
The people who maintain the pool say they have to change the filters every two or three days because of too much beach sand in our pool. This is time consuming and affects the life span of the filters and our pump and unecessary expenses. Please use the showers to remove sand from yourselves and anything that might end up in the pool such as toys, rafts, goggles, etc. and ask your guests to do the same.

Tradition is a beautiful community, like no other on the strand, let's keep it that way

Around the Tradition Golf Club..
golf tips
By Steve Dresser
www.dressergolf.com

Thumbs Up, Elbows Down
Here’s a quick tip to help you feel the proper setting or cocking of the wrists on the backswing and the subsequent release on the follow through.

Using a 7 iron, put the ball on a tee and plan to take only 3/4 size swings. On the backswing, take the club to the point where your thumbs point to the sky and your elbows point at the ground. Now turn through to the target and create a mirror image on the follow through side. You’ll feel an effortless yet powerful release of the club as your thumbs point up and your elbows point down on both the back swing and follow through. Try it, you’ll like it!
Good luck with your game

Summer was a busy season for golf maintenance. We vertical mowed greens and lightly top dressed sand about every 2 weeks; sprayed growth regulators and wetting agents on the greens, tees and fairways about every 3 weeks to help increase water infiltration and reduce grass clippings.
Course Maintenance Six Month Plan
  1. Replace crosstie steps on holes # 3, 7, 8, 12, and 14 with brick steps and landscape
  2. Install a fountain in the pond on # 14 and dye the pond blue
  3. Landscape holes # 2, 3, 10, 12, 14, and 17
  4. More irrigation heads around the golf course in areas that currently receive poor coverage
  5. Open the extended # 10 tee for play
  6. Level and sod the championship tee on hole # 15 with a shade tolerant grass
  7. Strip the bermuda grass off the white tee on hole # 17, level the surface and replace with a new grass that should withstand traffic --Let me know what you think of its texture and color after we open the tee
  8. Repair some of the worn areas and cart traffic spots
  9. Replace the split rail with a post and rope system to enable quick change of entry and exit points to cut down on cart traffic damage
I appreciate the care our members give to the golf course filling divots with sand and repairing ball marks; it certainly does make a difference. I ask that you remember to follow the cart signs upon entering and exiting the fairways

If I can be of assistance feel free to contact me by email:caddbs@hotmail.com

TRADITION MEN'S GOLF CLUB
By Steve Kronski

www.qualitykid.com/TTMC.htm
The Dog Days of Summer, normally upon us in August, arrived early this year as evidenced by the conditions during the qualifying rounds of the President’s Cup tournament on July 10th and 17th. The casual observer might have noticed many drenched retirees traversing the Tradition Golf Course looking as if they just got out of the community pool.

Since our last publication several events have taken place as follows:

Memorial Masters—Played in a Stableford format over a two-week period on 4/10 and 4/17 the results were as follows: 1st Place-Martyn Collis, 2nd Place-Tom Cardea, 3rd Place-Norm Nuding

The writer’s earlier predictions, regarding the profile of our winners: “around 65 years of age---gray-haired or balding---slightly/moderately over weight etc” were right on the money. This Swami makes Karnack look like an amateur.

Member/Member---In typical fashion our members paired up and then teed up in this two-week event (6/12 & 6/19) with the opening round format being 9 holes of alternate shot and 9 holes of Captain’s Choice. The second round followed with 18 holes of two-man, best ball. Congratulations to the winners:
1st- Autry Moore and Roger Hart
2nd- Bud Knittel & Rudy Schwarz
3rd- Andy Spaschek & Ron Eaglin

Member/Spouse--- With nary a trace of marital disharmony the Member/Spouse tournament took place on Friday, 6/23, followed by a delicious lunch prepared by Debbie Jackson and the Tradition Club staff. Format was: team Captain’s Choice. First place honors went to the team of Duane and Larry Barksdale who, not only won this event, but also seem to win just about every 50/50 that’s held in the Grand Strand area. Someone alert the IRS.

Daune & Larry Barksdale
  Black Tee Tournament—Also played over two weeks (5/1/5 & 5/22) this torturous annual event lived up (or down) to expectations. Winners as follows:
Gross: 1st-Autry Moore 2nd-Alan MacDonald
3rd-Tom Swanson
Net: 1st- Jim Pearson 2nd-Tom Cardea
3rd- John McLaughlin
As part of the Black Tee event your Men’s Club started what may become an annual tradition with Dick Culver preparing his world (perhaps just Ohio) famous pancakes. Ably assisted by Debbie Jackson and Ed Sheldon in the kitchen with Jack Ross, Don McDowell, Jim Conway, John McLaughlin and Bill Renault; the morning of 5/15 proved to be enjoyable and a great way to assuage the horrors of the first round of the Tournament.

President’s Cup--- The qualifying rounds were finished in July and the top eight net scorers then faced off in a match play format to determine our 2006 President’s Cup winner. The bracketing, with matches starting on Monday July 24th were as follows:
Upper Bracket: Dave Philips VS Dick Culver
Wayne Johnson VS Dick Hajec
Lower Bracket: Bud Knittel VS Tom Cardea
Frank D’Amato VS Ron Brugge

Second round matches were scheduled for Monday, July 31st, with the finals slated for Monday, August 7th. Good luck wishes were extended to all players.

A riddle from the staff:
Pick a number from one-ten, and then double it
Now take your number and add twenty (20) to it
Then divide by two
Now subtract the number you started with.
What is your answer?

Gold Cup Championship
Hampered by a failing memory and a whopping case of facial shingles that made the writer look like Carmen Basilio on a BAD day, this event, initially scheduled for Monday 6/26, was completely overlooked and, therefore, did not take place. As of this writing, we have re-scheduled the event for Monday, 8/14 which, by coincidence, was followed by a pizza party at the club. Details regarding this re-scheduled event were advertised on the Men’s Club web site.

Tradition Men's Club Annual Member/Guest Tournament
August 18th & 19th
The field was finalized and 34 teams, divided by handicap index into six flights, were set to square off in matches starting with three nines on Friday, August 18th. The final two matches will take place on Saturday, August 19th with the six individual flight winners then matching strokes in a Sudden-Death, elimination play off starting on hole #18 and then on to hole #13 (repeat if necessary).

As of this writing 126 members and guests are scheduled to attend the kick-off dinner at Kimbels Restaurant on Thursday evening, 8/17; a night to include dining/dancing and some spirited wagering as participants try to predict winners in each individual flight. There might even be some adult beverages somewhere in the mix and attendees were cautioned not to let themselves be over-served.

A recap of the individual Flights was posted at the club during regular Monday play on August 14th to give our members the chance to pick their winning team(s).

Stay in touch with your TMGC web site for upcoming major events with the Club Championships, Ringer Tournament and Two-Man team Shoot-Out on the schedule for the balance of our season.

Congratulations from the Men’s 18-hole Association to the winning team of Joan Sheldon and Dot Franco, as well as all of the other participating Tradition ladies, for a job well done in their team Shoot-Out, held on Sunday, July 16th. The quality of play was great and the birdies were flying while the crowd was treated to a wonderful tournament, followed by pizza and beverages at the club.

The Summer Gold Tee dinner featuring Eddie Sheldon’s famous Chicken Parmigiana was held on June 20th. Assisting Eddie was Harry Hunt and the kitchen crew consisting of the usual suspects: Vinnie Esposito, John McLaughlin, Bill Kendall, Ron Brugge, Jack Starrick, Ernie Sementilli, Bob Thompson, Jack Ross, Jim Conway, Jerry Bucello, Tom Ellison, and Martin Robic.

The meal was wonderful and a good time was had by all. Some of the guys even took a dip in the pool after dinner.

The Gold Tee 4th Annual Member Spouse Partner Tournament was held on July 12th. It was a great day starting with a shotgun start of ninety two players.

The winners (show below) were Vivian and Dan Coughlin, Kathleen and Jack Ross, Mary Jane and Jim Conway, and Betty and Big Al Ruff.

Closest to the pin honors went to Gloria Starrick, Sue Guzlas, Dick Pacella, and Roy MacSorley.

Nine Hole Ladies Golf Assoc
By Jeanette Renault
www.qualitykid.com/tradition_ladies_nine.htm

The Nine Hole Ladies continue making a good show by turning out on Tuesdays. Scores continue to improve, and we see more pars on our scorecards. Yeah!

May 23rd we celebrated our Member/Member with an herb theme. Many lucky players went home with a fresh herb to add to their garden. There was a bit of trading going on for the herbs of choice.

Our family outing on June 6 was a gourmet delight at the pool clubhouse. Members outdid themselves with appetizers to desserts. A few extra pounds were definitely added, hopefully to those muscles that propel the golf swing.
 
We hosted the South Strand Nine Hole Golf Tournament at Tradition on July 18th. Sixty-two ladies played a nine hole Captain's Choice in a shot-gun format. Despite a heat index of 97 everyone played well and enjoyed a delicious luncheon prepared by the Tradition Club. No club could have done it better; congratulations to Sue Guzlas and her committee for this successful day.


Jane Barbour & Team - First Place South Strand

The Sadie Hawkins tournament will have been held on August 12th weather permitting. For results see the online newsletter.

Marathon Bridge involves one pair hosting another pair to play 24 hands of Bridge each month September through May. The total scores are sent to a central location where a running score is kept until the marathon is over.

In June everyone will attend an event for the presentation of prizes. This format has been very popular, and we continue to grow. If you or someone you know might be interested next year, please call Danny Phillips @ 235-9338. We are especially looking for a few more couples for the Couples Marathon.
